One Yardsale After Another

We had a very busy weekend and it all started on Friday at the mail box.
When I started to blog I felt I would be lucky to have a handful of people
read my blog. One of the first few that followed my blog was Lauren from
rugs and pugs and it was an instant connection over the years. She sent me a happy
September gift. I love love love it thank you so much Lauren.
If you would like one contact Lauren a lady is selling them to raise money
for the doggie rescue. This picture does not do it justice.
We found a yard sale that you stuff a bag for 2.00. My daughter and I
split the bag and I got these Holt Howard pieces I think I will try
ebay and sell them.

On Thursday with my Thursday friend we hit the thrift and
I found so much. Lots of really nice clothes.

And at a yard sale I found this travel bag.
you store all your shampoos etc and then when you get
to your destination you open it up all the way and hang it from the
bathroom door. It is llbean and looks like new 2.00.

I have no idea why I love the cutting board shaped like
animals, but I do. the largest roll of curling ribbon for .25
and very cute little ornament were made by a lady that just
passed away in the area. I have several of her pieces and love them.
I was happy to get them for 2 for .25

And then the tale of the apple peeler. I purchased this pampered chef
peeler in the box for 2.00 daughter wanted it. when she picked it up to
figure it out she dropped it on her foot and wanted nothing more to do with
it. So I kept it and it works slick!

So I made a Norwegian apple pie from my
recipe box. While it is ok and I do mean just ok
(I will not make it again). First of all no cinnamon and I
don't feel it has enough batter there is apple that never had
any of the batter on it.

Friday night Miss B came to spend the night while her daddy
was in a curling tournament. (I know you Canadians  know what
that is.) She and I are doing puzzles and oh how she loves them so
much fun. And hey you get to see my best side ha!

I hope you all had a good weekend, we have a busy week ahead
we are off to Boston and I am hosting my women's group.
Have a great week!

JUST before sitting down to this computer I was in the kitchen preparing some things for dinner and making a mental list which included " I should get it together to have a yard sale" LOL! Then I came to visit and Ta Da there is your yard sale post.

Do you think it is a SIGN!!! ??? :)))

Congratulations on winning Lauren's nice giveaway. I declined because I seldom wear jewellery, I'm in the barn most of the time. I'm so glad that you won. It's for a good cause.

Nice find for so cheap and I love the idea of that travel bag.

I love, love doing puzzle and I reserves the right to make puzzle around Christmas. It's always so relaxing for me.

Have a great beginning of Autumn.

Whew! What a weekend and what great finds! That apple peeler is expensive in real life so you truly got a bargain there. Cute bracelet. I made some button bracelets last year and had a good time doing it. (Used up some of my old buttons in my button box). Have a good, busy week!

Thrift shops are my favorite places to shop. I don't do yard sales since you really need to get up and out early to get the good stuff and I want to dilly dally and drink mucho cups of java before breakfast before starting my day.

I love button bracelets!!!Such nice finds at the sales. I don't know why, but I hate garage sales and thrift stores. What IS the matter with me!!!?? Good luck in Boston!
